The Worth of Women
KIT presents the US premiere of the Worth of Women, adapted from Meritata Fontes text, translated by Virginia Cox.
Moderata Fonte was the pseudonym of Modesta Pozzo (155592), a Venetian woman who was something of an anomaly. Neither cloistered in a convent nor as liberated from prevailing codes of decorum as a courtesan might be, Pozzo was a respectable, married mother who produced literature in genres that were commonly considered "masculine"the chivalric romance and the literary dialogue.

Published in 1600, The worth of women takes the form of the latter, with Fonte creating a conversation among seven Venetian noblewomen. The dialogue explores nearly every aspect of women's experience in both theoretical and practical terms. These women, who differ in age and experience, take as their broad theme men's curious hostility toward women and possible cures for.

The Worth of Women is directed by Jay Stern in collaboration with Laura Caparrotti, composer Erato Kremmida, lyricist Maggie-Kate Coleman. The cast includes Carlotta Brentan, Laura Caparrotti, Aileen Lanni, Marta Mondelli, Danielle Sacks*, Irene Turri, Annie Watkins.
